Our weather pattern is about to make a change for the cooler…in terms of temperatures. Today will really be our only day of significant warmth as temperatures rise to near 60 this afternoon. Winds will be light as well making for a very comfortable day.
Looking longer range, a large trough looks to establish itself across the eastern-half of the country, keeping any significant warmth at bay to the southwest. This pattern appears it will hold through at least the second week of April, if not longer. This will keep our temperatures cooler than normal, however, there will be a few days sprinkled within this time frame that will favor above-normal temperatures.
There are a few chances for precipitation into the weekend. The first arrives later Thursday afternoon. Most of the model guidance keeps showers south, however I can’t rule out a few passing by here later Thursday. The next chance for rain and even snow arrives for Saturday. At this time it appears Easter will be dry, but cool.
